Infant has watery, stinky stools. Had taken benadryl few days ago for viral, non contagious reaction. Reason?

Hi, my 11 month old had 6 watery, stinky poops yesterday and has been a bit fussy. It had a lot of particulates and so he wouldn t get dehydrated I gave him some water and he slammed about 7 oz then a bottle before bed. He wakes frequently and had another BM at ~2am (he was in our bed at this point) which is very unusual. He had a rash a few days ago and our pediatrician diagnosed a viral, noncontagious reaction and suggested some benadryl . Thoughts? I m sure they are linked but I am worried about how long he should have these watery poops without the fear of dehydration . Seems bacterial bug maybe?

Your child is having gastroenteritis may be viral or bacterial. Give sips of oral rehydrating solutions in equal amounts of losses in stools to prevent dehydration and consult your Pediatrician for the assessment of hydration status and for the initiation of specific antibiotic if needed and addition of probiotic and zinc.
